The Razor 2 is a great race day and tempo run shoe. It’s comfortable, rides really smoothly and goes FAST without being too punishing.
I do like the upper on Razor 1, just a tad better, but Razor 2 is still an outstanding shoe and one of the best, along with Ride 7 of 2018 of any running brand out there right now.
Fix the minor upper issues and... tune down the firmness of that 14% firmer midsole, a touch but only a touch, and the very light, classy Razor 2 would be a perfect do it all fast shoe for me that could also handle the occasional easier run.
It’s still a very good uptempo shoe, at a very good weight. Razor 2 feels a little firmer than Razor 1 for me as well, which may well make it a better uptempo or race shoe, but also makes it a little less versatile for me.
Updates to Skechers GOmeb Razor 2
- The Skechers GOmeb Razor 2 is a running shoe that’s created for the individual who has neutral pronation. The majority of its silhouette resembles its predecessor, the original GOmeb Razor, but it now has an updated design and a toned-down color scheme.
- The notable change in the upper is the tongue. Now, it’s flat, and it doesn’t have any padding, decreasing the overall weight of the product while allowing more space for the instep to relax. A pull-tab has also been added to facilitate comfortable on-and-off wear.
- An updated midsole foam shaves off more weight from the GOmeb Razor 2. It’s still touted by the brand as a compound that offers responsive and responsible cushioning throughout the running session. Traction is handled by a rubber layer that shields the high-wear areas of the platform.
Skechers GOmeb Razor 2 size and fit
The Skechers GOmeb Razor 2 is right to size. It follows the usual choices of consumers when it comes to length. The available width for the women’s version is B – Medium, while for the men’s iteration, it’s D – Medium.
The outsole unit of the Skechers GOmeb Razor 2 features the Parametric Web, which is comprised of a lightweight rubber compound that’s capable of delivering sticky traction on a variety of surfaces.
FLIGHT GEN™ was designed by Skechers to be very lightweight. It’s also made to bring responsive cushioning and protection against impact shock. This midsole technology is also used in the GOmeb Speed 5 and other Skechers running shoes.
M-Strike is a midsole configuration that concentrates the cushioning in the middle section. This design encourages midfoot striking, which is allegedly a catalyst for a speedier performance because it transitions to the toe-off much faster.
FITKNIT resembles woven cloth. It makes up the majority of the Skechers GOmeb Razor 2’s upper unit. The purpose of this material is to cover the foot in a sock-like fit that’s free of potentially irritating seams. It also encourages breathability.
Synthetic overlays are placed in critical areas to help the fabric upper in keeping the foot secure and in place.
A molded heel counter locks the back of the foot in the shoe, preventing it from wobbling or exiting the interior chamber unintentionally.
Reflective details make the façade more visible in low-light conditions. This design is particularly helpful for nighttime runners.
